Honorary new CAMRA member George Osbourne has given us cheaper beer, I give you FIDLAR – Cheap Beer
A new track by Mazes, need I say more. It takes a while to get going but when it does it’s brilliant, I’m talking mainly on the solo stuff towards the end. This track is on their forthcoming LP ‘Ores & Minerals’ on Fat Cat Records available 18th of Feb, rather rudely the U.S. get it several days earlier, Feb 12th.
Guards are from New York, this track is off their debut album ‘In Guards We Trust’. Nill pois on the album title but this track is really good so it’s forgiven. The album was out yesterday so you can go grab it now. Well in the US it seems anyway http://www.amazon.com/In-Guards-We-Trust/dp/B00AK77ZR4
Yes Rizzle Kicks – I’m a big fan anyway – and they’ve made a song about tea – shame it’s Earl Grey – yuck – and sugar – yuck yuck. Anyway tea choice aside it seems like this could be a deliberate attempt at showing another more sophisticated side to the pop rap duo. I think it works.

Here’s White Arrows new video for their track Fireworks of the Sea.
I spent at least 5 minutes trying to work out the lyrics – I came to the conclusion they were largely nonsensical but either way I like its catchyness. I can’t get ray guns out of my head now. Tullycraft have been around a while, formed in 1995 and from Seattle – known best as the home of Frasier – obviously. Check them out on Soundcloud here. For more info best bet seems to be Fortuna POP
OK – so it may be the backing music to the new Windows 8 trail, see the bottom embed, but this is a damn fine song. And actually from what I’ve seen of Windows 8, it does actually appear to bridge the tablet desktop divide quite nicely – albeit with a tiny pinch of cack handedness that Microsoft seems to Excel (-ahem-) at.
